I believe the most sensible solution would be to join forces with 
OpenOffice.org. They have a well-maintained database of spelling and 
hyphenation dictionaries as well as tools and documentation for creating 
them (http://lingucomponent.openoffice.org/ ). The OpenOffice 
hyphenation is based on TeX hyphenation.
